Packaging optimization affects both direct and indirect costs.

It is generally accepted that potatoes keep best when stored in a well ventilated container in a cool, dry location, away from sunlight and excess moisture. It is because of this that paper packaging is an excellent choice for potatoes. There are a number of key advantages to packing potatoes in paper bags that make it a no-brainer for packers, retailers and consumers alike.
Corrugated Cardboard is the packing material of choice for many industries due to its durability, cost effectiveness and recyclability. Its high-tech construction ensures the material can carry a wide range of products and weights, protects against moisture and provides a sustainable packaging solution. Furthermore, corrugated cardboard is also highly customizable.
Some of the many benefits of corrugated cardboard packaging include:
Corrugated packaging provides a stable support and cushioning for most products, keeping items safe during long-distance transportation, shipping and handling. The corrugated material also helps keep moisture away from the product, which can be especially important for food products.
Corrugated Cardboard is highly customizable
Corrugated cardboard can be cut and folded into different shapes and sizes to suit multiple applications. Board thickness and strength can be adjusted for the specific product type and different coatings, treatments and adhesives can be applied to the board to give it certain properties. It can even become flame resistant!
Brands can customize their box with their own logo and design to make their product stand out.
J&M Kehoe can print your box with your own logo and design in mulitple colours. Contact us to find out more.
Corrugated Cardboard is cost effective and sustainable.
Corrugated cardboard boxes are some of the least expensive containers available. They don’t require high labor costs or costly tools to manufacture and fill the boxes.
Production time is about 1/4 the time of a wooden box.
The weight of a corrugated box is around 30% of a wooden box, meaning easy handling and less transportation costs.
Corrugated boxes make palletization easier which saves on transportation/storage space.
Corrugated board is Ecofriendly and 95% recyclable, so it is easy to get rid of waste
J&M Kehoe stock potato boxes in both New Season Potatoes and Selected Potatoes designs. We also supply corrugated trays, retail ready packaging and shop floor pallet boxes. We offer custom design options for all corrugated products. You can contact us today and we will guide you through the design process.
Packaging, and particularly food packaging, plays a vital role in our society. It can protect products from moisture and contamination and allow products to be transported easily.
Finding ways to recycle our packaging has become more and more important as population and consumption of packaging increases. For example, the UK alone generates 2.4 million tonnes of packaging waste on average each year. Consumers are increasingly looking to businesses to make their packaging reusable and/or recyclable, as the below chart shows.
J&M Kehoe paper sacks and potato sacks are 100% recyclable for your peace of mind. We source our plastic sacks from manufacturers who are committed to using recycled materials in their production.
